ptkdb module using Tkx?

Popcorn Dave has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Fellow monks,

I'm coming back to Perl after a hiatus of a few years and last night realized how rusty I am and longed for the ability to use ptkdb. I'm running the latest version of Perl on a win 7 pc and having one hell of a time finding a make utility that might allow me to install modules manually but I now see that Tk has evolved to Tkx.

I'm curious if there's been a port of ptkdb using Tkx and if so, where might I find it? Google and the Super Search here didn't turn up anything.

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

    It's wrong to assume that Tk has evolved to Tkx. ActiveStatePerl's supported version of Tk, has evolved to Tkx, but plain old Tk will still run on ActiveStatePerl. The problem it seems, is that like the shifting wind blown sand dunes in the desert, the various binary builds for various Tk releases seem to move around, hide, and are not clearly identified. Maybe ActiveState wants it that way?

    I know the binary Tk build for your Windows architecture is out there, maybe someone can point you to it, unless you want to move to Tkx.

    Doesn't Tkx have it's own debugger GUI?

    Another far out option, is to run the Tkx and Tk eventloop simultaneously, by running one as master loop, and the other as a slave loop, which you pump frequently with a timer. It works surprisingly well, see Wx with Tk for example.

        That part must not be automated, because some parts of kobesearch have not been updated for quite a while. I don't think new modules are even showing up (though new versions of existing modules are).

    Also try Devel::tkdb and Devel::tcltkdb.

    ppm install dmake MinGW

    Um, no it hasn't :) Tk is still Tk

    I'm curious if there's been a port of ptkdb using Tkx and if so, where might I find it?

    Devel::tkdb, Devel::tcltkdb, based not on Tkx, but Tcl::Tk and Tcl (on which Tkx is currently based)

    ActiveState has some Komodo or something, with a debugger, which might be based switched to Tkx by now
